This is the humble Christin Abode. We currently have it for sale by owner. It is a small home. (only 1000 sqft.) It boasts 3 tiny bedrooms and 1 bath. Don't let the size fool you- it is very nice on the inside. My husband and I actually remodeled the entire house. Well I guess it was more my husband than me. I did a lot of great supervising those days. ;0).
I have some of the best memories in this house. We brought all three of our children home from the hospital to this home, and it was the first house that I ever came to in Washington. I am a Texas Native. We actually purchased this home from my inlaws and they lived here on my first visit. There is so much I love about this place, and I am truly thankful for it.
But I am so ready to get the heck out of here. Potty training alone makes me crazy in this house with one bathroom. I long for the day of taking quiet showers. If one "baby" wakes up- we all wake up. Which happens nightly. Thankfully my girls, who are older than my son, have learned to sleep through busy nights. I am also ready to relocate to the county. We live right smack dab in the middle of town currently, and that makes for more noise issues. I say all this not to really complain, but to give myself reason to leave.
It is very bittersweet. The memories we have here are many. 7 years many. They are also wonderful!! I will miss this home but am looking forward to the future.

Thanks for visiting my "Pantry Beautification" and welcome to blogging! It's so fun and helps get the creative juices flowing. I have only been blogging for a month and already love it.

Would love to see photos of the inside of the Christin Abode!

Welcome to blogging! It is a whole new world, but such a fun, supportive and exciting one!

Best to you in the house selling! I've sold some houses by owner too. It is always bittersweet to leave your home and all the memories of life's events that took place there. Fortunately you can carry the memories with you. Take lots of photos!

Blessings!
So nice to meet you!

What a sweet home! My hubby and I are hoping to purchase our first one very soon and it will most likely be like this home - too bad yours isn't in Texas!

I hope the selling process goes well and I hope you blog again soon!!!
